In a year in which we have spent unprecedented hours at home, many of us find ourselves dreaming more than ever — of exotic, far-flung locales and doing things we can’t do due to social distancing. Not all of our subconscious explorations are pleasant, too. In fact, dream specialists have noticed an increase in strange and vivid dreams as the pandemic sweeps across the globe.
But there’s always Hermès to inject our dreamscapes with a dose of magic and whimsy through its Christmas collections. This holiday season, the storied French house is spotlighting on its signature hue with an imaginative campaign titled “L’Orange de Noël” to mark “a return to the warmth, enchantment and contentment of being together”.
The annual festive range, like the ones before, has something for everyone. Those obsessed with Netflix’s The Queen’s Gambit will adore the chess game set in mahogany and leather marquetry, while smiles are guaranteed for beauty junkies holding a box containing 24 iconic Rouge Hermès lipsticks. There’s also the L’Ombre des Merveilles, a new woody-oriental fragrance that captures the contrast of light and shade with the sensuality of tonka bean, the mysteriousness of incense and the deep, dark notes of black tea. Browse the gallery above for more thoughtful, uplifting gifts from the maison.
